Welcome to Innovations in Practice


We welcome submissions from teaching staff (new and experienced), researchers, professional services staff and students in higher education. Innovations in Practice includes the following:

  • Research in Practice case studies in higher education – based on learning or teaching in practice, typically describing: the organisational, historical and social context, technical specifications of the project, discussion of pedagogy, implementation, evaluation and limitations (suggested word count, 3000-4000).

  • Research in Practice articles in higher education – longer papers, providing a clear rationale for the study within the body of published research, an overview of the research methodology adopted, a presentation of findings and discussion in relation to existing knowledge (suggested word count, 5000-7000).

  • Reviews (Books) – book reviews should be related to aspects of learning and teaching in a higher education context.  Ideally the books should be published relatively recently (2016/17) (suggested word count, 750-1000).

  • Reviews (Technology) – a critique or review of technology application, outlining its application for learning and teaching in higher education, including any strengths and weaknesses (suggested word count, 1000-1250).

  • Viewpoint papers - short, snappy column pieces aimed at airing interesting ideas about learning and teaching and intended to stimulate further thinking, ideally from colleagues with an authoritative and experienced perspective of higher education (suggested word count, 2000-3000). 

    If you are interested in submitting, rest assured, we will give careful reading to everything we receive and the editorial team will offer guidance, support with effective pointers along the way.
